New Volvo S60 sedan is set to be launched in India

New Volvo S60 sedan is set to be launched in India

The all-new Volvo S60 sedan is set to be launched in India in March 2021. The Swedish carmaker will be bringing the third-generation of the luxury sedan and will begin accepting bookings for the S60 from January 2021.

Volvo’s S60 launch in India has seen a massive delay, considering the carmaker was originally slated to launch the model back in the second half of 2019. It has also been over a year, since the second-gen model was discontinued in India back in July 2019, leaving Volvo with only a single sedan offering in India.New Volvo S60 sedan is set to be launched in India

2021 Volvo S60 design
On the styling front, the all-new S60 features fresh design cues that are more in line with the design language currently seen across the Volvo range. The S60 sports a two-part front grille, signature ‘Thor’s hammer’ headlights, C-shaped taillights and more pronounced creases. As a result of these changes, the S60 now looks like a scaled-down version of Volvo’s larger S90 sedan.
